The Worlds Largest Privately Owned Yacht “Octopus”

In 2003, the launch of Paul Allen's 127m (416ft) "Octopus" secured her number one position as the world's largest yacht.

Microsoft's "accidental billionaire" Paul Allen - worth US$20 billion according to Forbes, the third richest man in America and 7th in the world - owns two other monsters yachts such as Tatoosh, ranked 3rd in the World in 2003.

Octopus cost Allen over US$200 million and has a permanent crew of 60, including several former Navy Seals.

She has two helicopters, seven boats, a 10 man submarine and a remote controlled vehicle for crawling on the Ocean floor. The submarine has the capacity to sleep eight for up to two weeks underwater.

On average, owners must spend a minimum of 10 percent of the purchase price every year to keep these yachts in good working condition and cover crew salaries. Therefore “Octopus” which cost Allen US$200 million requires a US$20 million annual budget.
